About IFTTT

 

IFTTT is changing the way people interact with technology by helping them get the most out of their favorite products and services through recipes. Recipes are simple connections between products and apps. There are two types of Recipes: DO Recipes and IF Recipes. DO Recipes run with just a tap and enable you to create your own personalized Button, Camera, and Notepad. IF Recipes run automatically in the background. Create powerful connections with one simple statement — if this then that.
